5:03pm
>> the budget once again from last year have not changed. all the price points what you are doing is coping last year's budget. because san francisco is in a bit of a budget crunch, staff is recommended that while we reserve our rights to the money according to state code that we return the money back to the general fund of the san francisco city and county and reserve the right to return the money itself. so we have the right to it in the future. if you have any questions, i'm happy to answer? >> that goes back to the clerk of the board is that correct? >> yes. it goes back to where the money comes from okay. comments or questions? >> i know the budget is going
5:04pm
to come back for us again, it would be helpful to have more of a detailed break down in terms of where this is going. i know for example you have a proposals sflafco budget explanation and it talks about what these categories are but it doesn't specify the amount per category, so i just wanted a lot more detail around the budget to have a clear understanding of what we are spending for things. >> i will be happy to follow-up with you on that. >> thank you. >> okay. thank you very much. we can open for public comment. any member would like to comment on the item no. 3. no one comes forward we'll close. this is live before us. commissioner campos. >> we want to have -- i was of the understanding that we would be voting on it today and it
5:05pm
would come back to us once more. yes. i'm fine with that >> make a motion to prove that we are going to get an understanding to get another opportunity to vote on it. okay. we'll take that without objects. thank you very much. no. 4, please. >> item no. 4, studies update on how jurisdiction seeks to elect officers between election cycles. >> sflafco staff, at each of your desk i did drop off an executive sum -- summary and data points we collected so far. i had expected to present a full draft, i ask the chair to give me a few more days to ensure that we have more in the report and we are correcting any of the errors. because there is so many data points involved. i don't want to have
5:06pm
an incorrect output. i wanted the give you very briefly and quickly summary of what we did. we looked at san francisco being the city and county, a charter city and county, we are the only one that exist. we took multiple data sets of looking for information. we looked at -- there is other places in the nation that have cities and counties and jurisdictions, like in new orleans they are called the parish rather than the city. there are 12 charters counties in california and compared to the state level to how to government runs. charter companies, you have no mayor, in the cities you have mayor's and counsel but not a board of
5:07pm
supervisors. we are check to see where it's going on and we don't have an exact city. for board of supervisors and sacramento counties fill vacancy depending on how far the vacancy and how far it is from the election itself. the information is there. when we do a full report we'll break it out. we also want to look at how one of the things we did is for mayor's office that immediately steps in san francisco, that's now how they permanently set to replace the mayor's position. we won't be looking at that aspect of it.
5:08pm
we are looking at how to mayor's seat gets filled. the one thing that we had initially intended on doing and with the permission of the commission we are looking at the 10 top cities nationally like new york and one of the things we realize that three of california's nationally top cities. if we wanted to we can go there but since they are outside of california they are different election laws that would take more research and effort to make sure we are comparing apples to apples. i hope to get the spreadsheet out by the end of next week. i just want to make sure we have the correct points w . with that i will answer any questions.
5:09pm
>> i will be interested. are you the sponsor supervisor avalos? >> i think we discussed this prior to your coming on sflafco and that was a report suggested to do. it's one of the things i'm interested and one of the commissioners is in this report. >> i would like to see other states and some of the major cities how they actually make appointments. that would be really helpful. thank you. >> okay. we'll do that and we'll release the draft report but we'll add in for the final report the top 10 cities so we are not delaying the draft report itself if that's okay. >> okay. thank you very much. so then the next meeting we can have a fuller report. >> my goal would be to have the final report for the next meeting. >> this item we can open up for
